The Probiotics

Topical probiotics are one of the absolute best ways to help calm inflammation on your skin. They have worked wonderfully for me.

The company I found that helped save my skin is called Probiotic Action.

Here is the set of cleansers and spray that I use, which is 100% natural, no “chemicals” at all:

Probiotic Action also just came out with a brand new, exciting product!

It’s a bentonite clay cleanser. Bentonite is a special kind of clay – I actually studied it extensively while on a geology field exercise in 2009.

Bentonite is rich in helpful minerals for the skin and very, very soft. A great cleanser for people with sensitive skin like me!
